W.I.P. Wednesday

Its W.I.P. Wednesday again.

I have a confession that I'm not very good at taking photos of things I have finished. Well this week, I finished some gorgeous little hexagon flowers for a friend and sent it off with some material. Its for the Friendship Challenge that I started with my girlfriend that moved away. 
I love this fabric and can't wait to see it come back to me in a friendship quilt. I hope that she loved the hexagons and maybe she will be nice enough to take a photo for a later post. (hint..hint).

So my W.I.P. week went like most weeks, gone before I knew what has happened. I'm still busily working away on my Quilted Fabric Basket but its been slow and I have a deadline to meet to have it finished to send off by Monday.

My DH had two nights away from us and came home with a new toy for his IPad and a request for a cover for both items to be kept together. 
The colour scheme he wants is blue, grey and black. So I did a little shopping and came back with this fabric. 
How gorgeous? There have been some odd looks, but I've told him that it will be ok in the end. Stay tuned for a look at what I make.

As for my is still a list and continues to grow and be less, however I chose to go.
After all, isn't our W.I.P. Wednesday a chance for all of us to stay true to ourselves, identify our UFOs or W.I.P.s and continue our journey of self discovery as quilters and craft enthusiasts.


  1. It will be interesting to see what you come up with for the iPad cover. Your fabrics will look nice together. Love the grey with the black, super fabric.

  2. I can't wait to see what you do for your husband's iPad cover - my best friend just got one and I suspect she'll be asking for a cover pretty soon. Happy WiP Wednesday! :)

  3. So identify with the week coming and going so fast I realize most of my life is a WIP! lol

    Thanks for the honesty and the fabrics are beautiful for the hexies. Enjoy the process of making something special for your hubby!

  5. I look forward to seeing your ipad cover, the fabrics are very sophisticated!

  6. The fabric for the iPad looks great!


  7. I like that fabric and definitely think it will work. The large scale dots are great.

  8. I cannot wait for it either. I too am going to get an iPad no I will need a cover.

    I love the idea of the Friendship quilt. I bet your friend will love the fabric choices and the little hexagons..

    Wonder what she is going to make with these?

  9. Love the fabric for the iPad cover, I too will be in need of a cover so I am keen to see what you create!
